“I tackled him on a play and said, ‘I finally got you down, man,'” Lehman remembered. “It was at the end of the game and they were blowing us out; He started laughing because he knew exactly what I was talking (about).”
SHEAD ON SNYDER
It's a media favorite to ask a football player if they know the legacy of a certain player or coach. When Adam Shead was asked the question this week, he gave an answer that showed Bill Snyder's legacy is understood at Oklahoma.
“We went up there last year and their freaking stadium is named Bill Snyder ... Snyder family,” Shead said. “I forgot the name, but it's Snyder something. That must me something because the coach is still there and he's coaching right now, so yeah.”
The official name is Bill Snyder Family Stadium, but Shead was close. Despite the official name, Shead acknowledged that Kansas State is a strong football program.
“I remember them being a really solid football team,” Shead said.

“The secondary, with the exception of David Garrett, is virtually the same. That is good news. The bad news is that they got torched a year ago. Hopefully, the experience has worked in their favor.”
